When Josh and Mary Foss moved from the Pacific Northwest five years ago, they said they missed the coffee shop culture they had grown to love.

“There really wasn’t a shop in Pflugerville where people could talk and connect,” Mary said. “So, we pursued it because we love coffee, and we love craft beer, and we love being a place where people can be together.”

The Fosses opened West Pecan Coffee + Beer in April 2018. They serve a variety of light bites, coffee, wine and beer.

Pastries, which are baked fresh daily, regularly sell out, Mary said. A crowd favorite is the blueberry scone, made with fresh berries that “burst in your mouth,” she said.

As far as coffee drinks, the latte is a best seller, Mary said. She suggests adding a splash of the house-made Pecan Sunrise syrup—made of orange zest; bourbon, which has been reduced to remove the alcohol; and a nut milk made from Texas roasted pecans.

On tap, customers favor local beers including the 512 Pecan Porter and Bluebonnet Cream Ale, Mary said.

“We probably have something on our menu that you would enjoy,” she said.

Customers include laptop-toting workers looking for Wi-Fi to moms seeking a latte and a safe place for their kids to play nearby, Mary said.

“Everybody is welcome here,” she said. “It’s a place where you can connect to whatever you need to connect to, whether that’s another person, your book, your work, your kids or to yourself—re-centering yourself for a minute.”

West Pecan Coffee + Beer hosts events, too. From classes—art, writing, and cake and cookie decorating—to trivia and live music, the shop offers space for customers to pursue their passions or explore a new talent.

“We love that people enjoy being in our space,” Mary said. “We want to do more of this, to be a hub of our community.”
